Bridges are for circumvention of Tor censoring networks/firewalls. If you are 
able to connect to the Tor network, there's no need for you to configure one. 
More info about bridges: https://www.torproject.org/docs/bridges

Yes, unless you enable VPN mode.

Yes, enable VPN mode. Keep in mind that the VPN feature is still experimental 
and you should not assume to be anonymous when using this mode.
